At Lisburne School we deliver Maths daily throughout the school using a range of learning experiences which encourage independence and resilience.
We teach all aspects of maths through the EYFS, Pre-national curriculum guidance and the National Curriculum, with input differentiated to the individual needs of the pupils. We promote a multisensory approach and use real-life situations to give context to our learning. We encourage exploration and independence in the classroom, outside and in the wider community. We carefully monitor and track children’s progress to ensure that appropriate support and challenge is provided for each child.
Throughout the school, maths is addressed through continuous provision, providing opportunities for child-led play, exploration and sensory activities.
Maths is incorporated into other curriculum areas to ensure mathematical skills are embedded in a meaningful context which is relevant to life in the wider world. Outdoor learning opportunities are planned into the maths curriculum to encourage engagement and provide enrichment.
Each year, we hold a whole school Maths Week with a particular focus area. During Maths Week, the children are provided with opportunities to develop their skills through a range of excitinglearning opportunities and activities planned around a specific theme.

Maths and Technology Week 2022
Our theme for Maths Week this year was AHOY ME HEARTIES with a focus on problem-solving with technology.
Throughout the week, the children took part in a range of fun and engaging activities to develop their problem-solving skills whilst exploring technology. Through a variety of immersive learning opportunities, the children worked hard to improve their knowledge and understanding of all 3 areas of maths.
Every child worked towards achieving their individualised maths target through motivating, hands-on activities such as metal detector treasure hunts, walking the plank, cannon-ball splat and creating maps.
What a fantastic week of exciting tasks incorporating fun, technology and maths!
